About Tabarka

Tabarka (Arabic: طبرقة Ṭbarqa) is a coastal town located in north-western Tunisia, close to the border with Algeria. Tabarka's history is a colorful mosaic of Berber, Punic, Hellenistic, Roman, Islamic, Genoese and Turkish culture. The town is dominated by an offshore rock on which is remains a Genoese castle. Nationalist leader Habib Bourguiba, later president of post-independence Tunisia, was exiled here by the French colonial authorities in 1952. Tourist attractions include its coral fishing, the Coralis Festival of underwater photography, and its annual jazz festival.
